A man who used to be a police chief, the head of a police drug squad, and Solicitor General of B.C., is now a security consultant for medical marijuana growers.
Kash Heed says he advises new commerical growers on how to keep their businesses safe from organized crime.
He says, “So it was a natural fit at a time where we’ve moving this industry from that grey area, that illicit market, to a commercial-based, responsible operation here in Canada.”
He also helps countries, such as the United States and Uruguay, develop policy that moves toward desciminalizating marijauana.
Heed has spoken out on the failings of the war on drugs since 2001.
